Do Republicans not notice the irony when they call prosecutions of torturers a "witch hunt"?
Waterboarding and getting innocent people to confess to things they did not do.

Why does the word "witch hunt" remind me of another group of "enhanced interrogators" that used to be around in the past?

And how come there wasn't enough public transit in DC to handle all us precious conservative patriots who showed up in Washington because glen beck told us to? We got your fucking liberal irony hanging right here. Its right here somewhere.

3. It's only a witch hunt when it is directed at the actions of people they
support. When they go on witch hunts it is to protect the country from socialists, commies, liberals and other unwanted types they don't favor, then they call it being a patriot of the country.

4. Well said! Because women suspected of being witches were tortured in the old days.

7. These are many of the same people who say condemning bigotry is intolerance.
No, I don't think they see the irony.

8. No. Ex: The ones who complain loudest about the deficit were instrumental in creating it
by giving Bush Boy every bauble and tax cut he wanted.
